The story of young Tookie, who has a rough start in life. We learn how Tookie was pushed around through "the system" the horrors she endured and how she turns out in the end.
A thought-provoking story told through Toolkie voice from four years old until her teens. Her life was not easy, and she struggles to stay grounded and as normal as possible. We see the effects of living with a drug addict mother, then in foster care.
I strongly recommend My Name is Tookie to readers of all genres. The cover is beautiful and (in my opinion) captures Tookie as I imagined she would look like.
Ms. Walker really writes a spellbinding tale with My Name is Tookie. I was mesmerized reading Tookie's harrowing tale from young child to young adult. I would have given this five stars, but I felt like the ending was a bit of a let down. I was glad to see Tookie accept herself, but it could have went much farther than it did. This book is filled with triggers for sexual and drug abuse, among others. This is the second book of Ms. Walker's I've read, and she is definetly an author to watch. Four out of five stars!
Tookie is a mixed race child whose mother turns to drugs to forget her own torturous past. At age 4, Tookie is molested by one of her Mom's many man friends and it leaves her (Tookie) in a state of inconsolable indifference. She is then sent back to her loving grandmother. After, much counseling. she gets to wondering about her sexual preference. Finally at the age of 15, she comes to the conclusion of what she really is.
I would like to see a sequence to this book. It kind of leaves the reader wondering how she turned out in later life.
